Hi Brown,

Considering strong family history of cancer and your history of anemia, shortness of breath and hard node near ear, the first thing to do is an FNAC and rule out cancer. There is no point in waiting for antibiotics. A chest x ray and peripheral smear study is also needed. Please do the investigations as early as possible. A visit to hemato oncologist / medical oncologist / surgical oncologist is mandatory.
